to ask him to bring the thing to close the last hope of a quick and to the crisis. and the to he says sometimes he arrives too late and the house he has been sent to has either been looted or lies in ruins we ask him to take us alone on one of his salvage streets but he says he hasn't been able to get across the border for two days himself the report of the world you don't know if you will be shot at or not when you're driving through the ganske there is an area the army uses to attack the city where they're surrounded but they keep attacking the city. so instead we try to get to deniece we asked an anti-government fighter
2:04 am
what lies ahead for alexander says his smoketown which lies between the city and the border has seen some of the most intense shelling in the area he's driving back there and he admits the rocky trace. really a boomerang but i think they don't want to let the refugees cross the russian border which is why they are shooting at the roads they're also trying to cut us off from humanitarian aid food and water alexander politely refuses to take us with him we take his number and agree to keep in touch to check on him and the road once he reaches his destination the wrong several times but no one is answering reef nationality on the russian ukrainian border and playing an active role in kiev scrapped out of the east is the national guard a privately funded special group that largely consists of ultra nationalists this video here showing one of the units going basically on a witch hunt for what they call separatists you can see them storming the house right where they are detained that man of freedom up for a while throw

a bag over his head and toss him in the back of a car. now the national guard is believed to be behind the disappearance of a news photojournalist under the stone and went missing in eastern ukraine four days ago he's reportedly being held captive by the agency has demanded stun is released. free drew has been set up on twitter to hold his life just two weeks ago a british correspondent who had been occasionally working for art he was also detained he says he was beaten and tortured for three days before being deported. now ukraine could cut the transit of russian gas to europe kiev believes it will help contribute to the pressure on moscow brought about by the e.u. sanctions there's a teaser going to go to school reports they were just being russia that ends up being. obviously it will affect russia's shipments through europe but it will should look at the implications the situation will have on russia's european partners especially of the countries that are in the center in the east and in the
2:06 am
south of europe some of them are getting as much as almost one hundred percent of their gas supply from russia via ukraine and of course with those countries have already found themselves out in the cold literally here in the so-called gas wars between russia and ukraine some years back and they could be looking for another repetition of that experience if indeed ukraine does go through with its promise of sanctions and we may assume that ukraine wants to punish russia by posing these sanctions but as a result what we're looking at really is ukraine punishing its european neighbors and political analyst matthias dorn felt he believes ukraine's announcement is likely to raise some eyebrows among its european partners. i see that this proposal will never gets reality since the pressure from brussels by commission and other actors from the national states but furthermore it shows that the ukrainian government is not willing to cooperate at all and sees only their own interest after hearing this is for all the states in southeast europe like this will be
2:07 am
hungary. and bulgaria to lobbying much more to get a very secure supply and if you create is not willing to guarantee it there will be other options or one of these options which could be used to pump russian gas into europe bypassing ukraine is that of the south stream project right that for now the construction of the pipe is stalling under the pressure of the e.u. lawmakers some of them arguing it actually doesn't comply with some regulations despite that south european nations involved say they are ready to adopt the necessary laws in order to finish the construction. it's an international thanks for joining us the u.s. has carried out a new airstrikes on jihadist militants that have managed to occupied territories in the northern parts of iraq fighter jets along with. a convoy and artillery positions of the so-called islamic state militant group the attacks came up to
2:08 am
president obama's pledge to protect u.s. personnel in iraq by the rapid advance of these lists but isn't easy because one of reports many believe it's actually washington that originally paved the way for the rise of these you harvests we're leaving behind a sovereign stable and self-reliant iraq three years on is america coming back today i'll summarize two operations in iraq targeted airstrikes to protect our american personnel. and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of iraqi civilians the target this time is the islamic state formally known as isis a terror organization which hasn't only been rampaging through the country with tremendous speed and extreme violence but is even proclaimed its own state stretching from iraq to syria so radical even al qaeda says it's too much brutally murdering anyone even muslims in its way destroying holy sites attacking religious
2:09 am
minorities taking control of key infrastructure including would refineries and dams military hardware as well while certainly potentially more dangerous today than al-qaeda they are very extremely radical group with increasing capabilities capabilities which you are only slightly state to set its sights way beyond iraq and syria. and can tell you. and i know. that to another but it wasn't just the way you know that come. out of the not enough. of the cells on the model. because you can't buy shallow data that got so enough that i'd say a lot incapable of dealing with them on its own that that's to washington for help but where did the slamming state or isis fighters come from we are where we are because we armed the syrian rebels we have been fighting alongside al-qaeda fighting alongside i says isis is now involved in in two countries but here's the anomaly we're with isis in syria we're on the same side of the war so those who
2:10 am
want to get involved to stop isis in iraq are allied with isis in syria that is the real contradiction to this whole policy the white house says that the limited u.s. military action in iraq could be extended. to the state tightens its grip on iraq according to the un around two hundred thousand new refugees have fled their homes what isis claims it's made more than a dozen military gains over the past five days alone you are just going off r t. a journalist john white believes in order to help the iraqi people perhaps america will be better off revealing its relations with the regional allies that support the jihad instead of simply bombing the country. entire focus over u.s. short western foreign policy in the region has been to eisley. icily around in both israel and the snowballing back in their feces so if you're interested in alleviating the fire as reaching across the middle east you have to understand that
2:11 am
the divide in the region right now is not between sunni and shia it's not between rich woman on this one is between sixty and a known c.t.d. and so the rule must be to isolate known security and forces to boston on safety to the force and so they have to also look at the relationship with the so the arabian sea the khatami's the kuwaitis to go overseas who are four main thing in funding this chaos in the region and have been for quite a number of years now the u.s. says its involvement in iraq will be a limited one with obama promising not to send more troops back there while u.s. soldiers were first deployed in iraq in march of two thousand and three the numbers peak four years later reaching one hundred sixty six thousand by the presence began to shrink when obama announced the withdrawal in two thousand and nine but war correspondent eric margolis says despite obama's promises the new campaign in iraq will soon demand more and more soldiers. token yours right there
2:12 am
designed to scare the. be a sunni forces and to boost the morale of the shia forces the problem is this is a classic situation with vietnam mission creep and to the us it's already sent in at least eight hundred combat troops special forces into iraq there's a lot of americans in the kurdish area in erbil and the miserable performance of the iraqi army suggests that the u.s. will have to intervene more forcefully if it wants to prop up the current government and in today's breaking the set abby martin and i guess to try to find out why the bombing iraq again will solve any of its problems is a preview. since the u.s. and its occupation of iraq the country has only fallen deeper into chaos the
2:13 am
horrors continue as isis also referred to as the islamic state of iraq in the levant continues to seize more of the country obama has responded to the crisis with the military strikes but is bombing iraq for the third time the solution to stopping the rise of islamic extremism told me break it down earlier i was trained by george galloway respect party member of u.k. parliament i first asked george if he worries that these military strikes could turn into a full blown military intervention for the third time. i would think so but of course there are many mysteries in this story wrapped up in many. mystery why it's taken so long for president obama to organize these airstrikes a mystery that makes many people in the arab world suspicious about who isis really are good it really working for. them.
2:14 am
are still to come here with the international the world's largest oil for joining forces for arctic exploration coming up what are the international goals and yes the exxon mobil is set to drill russia's northernmost well and a multi-billion dollar deal on affected by the sovereign relations between moscow and washington. this side where their funds are going to go so some of it's going to text books and to wish and that leaves less money for people to put food on their tables and colleges across the u.s. food banks to help hungry conscious dropped students will tell you more in a few minutes. when the unit being union promised to make ukraine become part of a. it clearly contributed to the bathtub ration of tensions within ukraine ukraine
2:15 am
will not become part of the european union won't tell tales ukraine absolutely doesn't have the economic level to become part of the e.u. . we speak your language. news programs and documentaries in spanish what matters to you breaking news a little turn it into angles stories. where you hear. the spanish find out more visit. the stories we cover here we're not going to hear any other big story. there's a reason they don't want to. point. out now let's break the set.
2:16 am
time it's our international oil giants from russia and america are set to begin their joint project to explore the arctic. an exxon mobile will be using a giant rig to drill the first well in a program that will be russia's most northerly platform covered with ice for most of the year the sea will be where the two will be operating up to three hundred fifty meters deep but underneath all of that is an estimated six billion tons of extractable oil belongs to the west siberia province which already provides russia with most of it all and gas boy field of the center for policy studies think tank here but he believes that despite the sanctions this actually has the potential to become a successful example of international cooperation. this particular project they've been working on it for several years. mobility already invested
2:17 am
many many millions of dollars they could do with the oil and they're going to have the sanctions do not apply to this particular project because the deal was already solved that russian state oil company has a twenty percent investment by being rude to spin mode bill accelerating location provides new sources of hydrocarbons so they really need to try and save time and they've already invested a considerable amount of money this is so they'd have to write that off if things didn't go ahead so i think in that respect my prospects are relatively optimistic the one nine hundred eighty s. a quick look at what we have are lined up for you online right now you can learn how cancer patients in the u.k. and losing the battle for life while drugs producers and hospitals lock horns over medicine purchasing conditions. plus internet bullying is

a sad trend among today's teens but apparently one youngster has found a way to fight back what's in her tool box last week all. right. first rate. and i think that your. instrument. is our international israel has renewed attacks on gaza after the fragile cease fire with hamas crumbled but there was another battle television's fighting but this time it's inside its own borders aimed against those daring to speak out
2:19 am
against the offensive is our teams fall asleep. the wing gaza is becoming a hash tag headache the air war in the skies has been joined by the hot air war online with almost two thousand casualties across the border it's no wonder many arab israelis are rebelling in support of the gaza braverman but sometimes there's a price to pay as russians are treating the most russia helped organize demonstrations against the israeli army and posted online about what he and others call the i.d.f. massacres in gaza police investigated me several times for my political activity especially during the war period and also i have received threats through the phone through facebook by right wing callers who work for things like. killing and things like that several israeli mayors have suspended outworkers for posting support for gaza's fighters online some israeli universities hospitals and

even mobile phone companies have followed suit one student who wore a t. shirt with the word palestine and a cafe near a traditional palestinian scarf now faces possible expulsion they are expressing their opinion it might be in a sarcastic way but it doesn't have any incitement to violence it doesn't have an incitement for its isn't it doesn't call for any act of violence and therefore legally speaking it is part of the speech that should be given the protection of the constitutional air protection arab students were too frightened to speak to us on camera but what they would say is that the university had completely ignored posts calling for their death the reality shows us not only now but also before that when it gets to the freedom of expression of the arabs it is easily more easily restricted l.f. a tip deals with such cases as the hate of a worker's rights organization is now contacted almost daily baraboo police have
2:21 am
been fired. well suspended for speaking out against israel's operation in gaza even those who condemn the racism of far right wing israelis face punishment sadly we have been in this before for the second intifada situations but not like this time that's what's more why the. view from the south of hates the situation of really going to about. i'm not feeling the government is doing anything for a country that claims to be the only democracy in the region it's a serious charge in today's world the fight for public opinion is arguably as important if not more than what goes on on the battlefield as critics of israel's operation in gaza continue to climb both in and outside the country tel aviv will need to find a more efficient weapon than just merely trying to silence her detractors policy r t tel aviv or sort of pakistan now to open up the r.t.

preparations are well underway to feed those in need when they come back in september according to the college and university food bank alliance there are about one hundred twenty food pantries at higher education institutions throughout the u.s. dozens more are in the process of being set up like here at nassau community college in new york's long island they're choosing to do something to help themselves and to improve their lot in life by going to school they have to decide where their funds are going to go so some of it's going to textbooks into tuition that leaves less money for people to put food on their tables the food pantry boom is only beginning as prices for education skyrocket having grown by five hundred forty percent since the eighty's according to the u.s. department of labor some people are coming here in the not even way. they can barely afford the tuition nineteen year old stacy abbey is a originally from an upper middle class family in india living below the poverty line since moving to america it's

2:26 am
fifteen dollars a month they should try it well they should try to feed their families on food stamps so on they have to see and see what a fifteen dollars cup would do well politicians narrow in on cutting costs rather than seeing the bigger picture it's volunteers like stacey along with two other students and faculty that are trying to help however they can by building and running what is for now a small space you don't have to be scared you don't have to be hungry there's someone out there who cares about that they hope will make a real difference and artsy long island new york or up ahead here we're not international u.s. fighter jets about to bombing iraq i mean modern takes a look at the evolution of isis because.

coward to just flip a switch to disperse a crowd with not a drop of blood visible and the fact that it seems not harmful as the police to be justified in using it whenever they want for the sake of the constitution i think no police forces should be able to use a spell read technology but that's just my opinion. as f. scott fitzgerald might have said free trade agreements are a racket like the movies and the brokerage business you cannot be honest with admitting that its constructive contribution to the battery is exactly minus the zero. what's happening guys on abby martin and this is breaking the sat or got a packed show for you today will be covering
